We practice and teach commitment, dedication, time management, and leadership skills daily with specialized training groups that fit each individual’s ability and goals.

Through the sport of swimming, we encourage ideals such as honesty, integrity, hard work, self-discipline, self-esteem, organizational skills, teamwork, and excellent sportsmanship.

Swim Teams

Pre-competitive Swim League at Sherwood Family YMCA

This is for youth that are interested in taking the next step after swim lessons. This is a fun, low-pressure introduction to learning about competitive swimming. 

This fun swim league will introduce concepts of competitive swimming in a low-key, non-competitive setting.

Participants will learn and practice all four competitive strokes with appropriate turns, starts, and how to build a workout set, including dryland and stretching. There will even be opportunities for mock swim meets.

PREREQUISITES: Must have completed Level 4 or a tryout.

For a tryout, contact sherwoodaqua@ymcacw.org
